We stopped for just one night on Saturday the 11th October 2014 to attend a family function. The downstairs communal rooms - reception, bar and dining room were all looking recently refurbished to a high standard. Our room was clean but basic, usual tv and brew making gear. Totally clean including the bathroom. Having said that the bathroom although clean... More

Thank you to Lisa and the staff of 281 for allowing my Hospitality students to look front and back of house. It was really interesting for them to find out about the hotel industry in which some of them are hoping to find careers in. We took photos of the lovely bar and dining room and Lisa showed us some... More

My Fiancé, my 2 year old son and I stayed here from the 13/09/14 til 15/09/14. I must say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were stylish and very clean - we had great night sleeps, very quiet, didn't hear anything from other visitors or traffic - nothing, it was lovely and peaceful. The staff there are very attentive... More

I went with a few friends for dinner and the menu did sound lovely. I ordered the seabass and risotto, the fish was tasty however the risotto didn't have much flavour and the portion was quite small. For nearly £15 I was disappointed and I did mention this to the waitress who said she would feed the information back and... More

An excellent small wedding venue. Food was very good, service excellent, flexible arrangements for music and not expensive. The cost of the room was deducted from the overall cost. Overall, very good value for money.

Wasn't impressed with the small, tired looking room, very disappointed with it. The window had frosted glass which made it feel like a prison. The walls were very thin, and you could hear what people were talking about in the next room, even listened to someone snoring! There was no lift to the top floor, and very steep stairs, not... More

281 is local to us so we only usually use the restaurant and bar either for business or pleasure. We have always found Lisa and her team to be highly accommodating and have enjoyed the refreshments and surroundings. It's a lovely building with some tasteful renovation done in recent years and there's a lovely patio area out front where you... More

So I booked a 'suite' here at the 281. Location is good and it is easy to find. Ample parking too which is good. On arrival I checked it and was told my room was on the second floor. No lift. When I got to the room I was very disappointed that the decor advertised on the website bore absolutely... More

The friendly welcome is a nice start. The accommodation is perfectly adequate, at the price, but lacks some presentation. A chair in the room would be welcome. Problems with getting a TV reception and lack of soap in the shower- gel dispenser are minor irritations. Steep stairs and one or two steep steps immediately outside the bedroom door demand attention... More
